Thanks for the rec SDH

I'll have to check it out later - currently listening to 10/31/79 for the second time in 2 days.

I listened to 11-3-84 yesterday - then listened to 10-31-79 and the difference in raw energy is amazing - my first thought was that it was mainly the different years, then I thought perhaps it is a West Coast (Berkeley) East Coast (Nassau) thing. Not sure exactly why the difference but the 84 Berkeley show while well played seemed more like a GD cover band than the GD themselves.

Just my uninformed thoughts

Uninformed? Nope. Nice analogy.

As for the Halloween 79 show, hard to find a funkier Shakedown. Another great show that more than stands up to frequent listening. Enjoy.

I agree with your cover band comment. Most of the band's output from the 80's and 90's sounds more like a GD tribute band to me.
